The new restaurant and brewhouse is located at the intersection of Fallon Road and I-580, across the parking lot from the new Target Superstore in the 380,000-square-foot Fallon Gateway shopping center.
Pleasanton's new Stoneridge Creek retirement community and Paragon Outlet Center in Livermore, both under construction, are located directly across I-580 on El Charro Road.
The 8,500-square-foot restaurant can seat 280 diners and features BJ's extensive menu including BJ's signature deep-dish pizza, award-winning handcrafted beer and famous Pizookie(R) dessert.
BJ's highly detailed, contemporary decor and unique video system, including a 103-inch plasma set as well as several high-definition flat panel televisions, are a highlight of the restaurant, that calls itself very family-friendly.
Operating hours are 11 a.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday, and until one hour past midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
"We are excited to bring the BJ's concept to Dublin," said Jerry Deitchle, BJ's chairman and CEO. "Our new Dublin restaurant is our third restaurant opening so far this year, and is also our 10th restaurant in the San Francisco Bay market where we enjoy some of our highest sales volumes."
"We continue to remain solidly on track to open as many as 16 new restaurants during fiscal 2012, including the relocation of an older, smaller-format 'pizza and grill' restaurant to a site that can support a larger-format BJ's restaurant," he added. "All of our remaining new restaurants for the current year are either in the permitting stage or are under construction."
